Whitman: Toy Drive Begins Assisting Families in Need

Fresh off another successful weekend of collecting donations, the Whitman Area Toy Drive shifts its focus to helping those in need. 

The Whitman Area Toy Drive began mobilizing in early November with volunteers setting up the operation in the Whitman VFW Pavilion and then distributing donation boxes to local business. Lead organizer Donnie Westhaver says the annual Stuff A Cruiser event held this past weekend in honor of fallen Weymouth Police Sergeant Mike Chesna was a resounding success.

 Armed with hundreds of toys for nearly all ages, the drive now shifts to helping those families in need.  Once the organization is contacted about a family, the process is very discrete. Close to 175 families have received assistance so far.

To donate or for more information call the Whitman Area Toy Drive at 781-447-6883.
